Their music is unforgettable. Their name is legend. The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story is an intimate journey through the lives of Robert and Richard Sherman, the astoundingly prolific Academy Award® winning songwriting team. While their songs, "A Spoonful Of Sugar (Mary Poppins)" and "I Want To Be Like You (Jungle Book)," to name a few, celebrated family entertainment and happy endings, their life together was not as harmonious. Go behind the scenes for a fascinating glimpse into how Walt Disney used the language of music to bring the brothers together, creating a cinematic legacy like no other.
